These Plainsboro, New Jersey homeowners were already in the process of making several changes to their home. These projects included a sun room addition that was to become an exercise room, and a complete exterior makeover. However, as both of these projects were in progress, the homeowners decided that they want to finish off their basement.
This project can be classified as a simple basement remodel, as it was finishing and renovating approximately 900 square feet, but not adding many typical “major” basement features such as an entertainment center, wet bar, extra bedroom/bathroom, etc. The remodel makes these 900 square feet almost like a new new room addition to the home.
This Middlesex County basement project, while basic, included many components. Walls were sealed, vapor barrier, insulation, moisture-mold resistant drywall, new stairs, CoreTec Plus flooring, column wraps, recessed lighting, access closets and panels. No pipes or ductwork were relocated, they were allowed for in the design plan.
The project was designed, developed and sold by Design Build Planners. Craftsmanship was from Pro Skill Construction.
The homeowners style preferences were for a contemporary look and finish. They drew their inspiration from remodeling projects featured on Houzz.com. The design options are a result of homeowners online research combined with an in-home consultation with Design Build Planners. There is also a proprietary profile checklist that homeowners fill out that depicts their lifestyle and room usage. After compiling this information, Design Build Planners incorporates their construction knowledge and design creativity for the space with a focus on the budget and overall investment.
Below are a couple of before photos of the existing space. Further, you can see some of the pictures that were taken as the job progressed. And of course, the after photos.
The project design and development was by the Design Build Planners.
